Round 7: KWS 69 lost to Orange City Warriors 4/72
Report: Orange City were simply too good in all departments on Saturday and secured a 6 wicket win over the Scorchers. The Scorchers won the toss and batted first but were dismissed for 69 in 23 overs. While this was nowhere near the total that the Scorchers were looking to compile it was good to see players such as Will Harborne (11) and Harry Gutterson (11) contributing with the bat. The innings was torn apart by Caleb Toms who ripped through the Scorchers middle order taking 4 for 7 from 4 overs of fast and straight bowling. Orange City passed the Scorchers total after 19 overs for the loss of only 4 wickets. Their batting highlight was undoubtedly a powerful 24 from Caleb Toms. However the Scorchers made City fight for every run and there was some impressive bowling from Henry Forsyth, Archie Haling and Jed O’Neill and a fantastic catch from Gian Wynn that brought about the downfall of the dangerous Toms. Thanks to Mr Hannelly for umpiring and Mr Charlton and Tom Madigan for their help with scoring. Thanks also to all those who came to support the Scorchers on the day. By Mr Kerridge (Coach)
Round 8: BYE
Round 9: KWS 6/96 (A Haling 26) defeated Orange City Gladiators 7/95 (H Gutterson 2/4)
Report: The KWS 15 Scorchers won their first game back after the break by 4 wickets with 6 overs to spare. After winning the toss and choosing to bat first Orange City compiled 95 runs for the loss of 7 wickets from their 28 overs. Tight bowling and some good fielding (two wickets fell to run outs) had left City 4 for 42 at the half way mark but a fighting 34 not out by Gus Cornish enabled them to post a respectable total. A number of Scorchers bowled well including Harry Gutterson who took 2 for 4 from 3 overs, Nelson Shepherd who took 1 for 5 from 3 overs and Will Englund who took 1 for 5 from 3 overs. Will Harborne and Oscar Nuthall also impressed by not only bowling the occasional good delivery but by bowling good overs in their spells and this helped to keep the pressure on the City batsmen.
In reply KWS looked to be in control thanks to openers Jono Rasmussen and Archie Haling who combined well to put on 23 runs in quick time. After Jono was dismissed for 12 Archie continued to play with controlled aggression and his new partner Henry Forsyth used some deft placement to keep the score moving nicely. The total had moved to 50 in the 10th over and disaster struck: a powerful straight drive from Archie was deflected into the stumps at the non-strikers end when Henry was out of his ground. The Scorchers then lost 4 quick wickets including that of Archie who had played some very good attacking shots in his 26 and defeat seemed a possibility with the score on 6 for 68. The match was eventually won thanks to a fine partnership between Harry Gutterson (17 not out) and Will Harborne (7 not out). Harry played with a great deal of common sense and power. He either left or defended good deliveries and put the bad ones away to the boundary or one occasion over it. Will also deserves credit for the determined way he held up his end and supported his partner.
Thanks to everyone who came to support the Scorchers on the day. By Mr B Kerridge (Coach)
Round 7: KWS 7/109 defeated Orange City Warriors 1/107
Round 8: KWS Heat 6/88 (L Hunter 50no, H Priest 2/7) lost to KWS Royals 3/92 (C Tink 52no)
Round 9: KWS (M Webster 33) defeated CYMS 7/103
Report: The second half of the KWS Heat’s season started off with tremendous success against CYMS on Saturday. Losing the toss, CYMS elected to bat in which gave the Heat a little more edge.
Harrison Sharpe bit the bullet and claimed his first wicket of the match in the second over of the game. Wickets fell constantly at the end of the innings due to great fielding and bowling. Will Denman put on a catching masterclass and so did Saxon Buckley with stretching full arm to catch the ball in the slips. Mac Webster (debutant) and Harrision Sharpe contributed 4 wickets together with only going for 24 runs from the 12 overs they bowled. Luke Hunter manage to grab 2 wickets in his 2 spells, with only 12 runs to his name. Dylan Tucker snatched a wicket in his second over providing the team with sensational leg spin like the great man Shane Warne himself. CYMS batted out the overs only succumbing to 103 runs for 7 wickets from the 28 overs.
The boys knew they were up to the challenge and must take advantage of any bad balls. Despite the slow start, Luke Hunter and Riley Hall stayed in for the first ten overs to take the shine off the ball. At 14 overs KWS were 1/28 needing 79 runs from the last 14 overs. Sam Gee and Luke Hunter were dismissed in a space of 2 overs, Mac Webster (debutant) and Harrison Sharpe chased down the runs with a fiery 59 runs partnership from just 7 overs. Mac was not out on 33 with 4 boundaries and a 6, and Harrison had hit 2 boundaries in his short time at the crease. A great victory for the Heat with finals coming around soon. By Cam Rasmussen (Coach)
Round 7: KWS 3/105 (H Priest 53no) defeated Cavaliers 6/102 (C Tink 2/13)
Report: On the first of December the Kinross Royals played the Cavaliers at Country Club. The outfield was extremely fast and the pitch was suited for batting. We lost the toss and went into bowl. Our team bowled well keeping the ball on pitch and not letting the batsman get comfortable in their crease. Dan, who usually is our keeper, bowled for the first half of the innings and got two maidens and a wicket. At the end of the innings with the fast outfield and great batting pitch we did well to keep the opposition to a score of 6 for 102. We batted superbly with only 5 of our batsman being needed and finding the runs with a little under 10 overs to spare. This was largely due to Harry Priests first 50 scoring 53 not out in an incredible batting display. Tom Storer and Tom Patton also batted well, giving Harry someone to bat with. Due to our batting which has been a bit patchy the last few games we won comfortably with the team happy. By Ollie Wong (Yr 7)
Round 8: See result above versus KWS Heat
Round 9: KWS 7/108 (D Hunter 23no, H Thompson 21) lost to Orange City Warriors 2/109
Report: Archie Baldwinson won the toss and choose to bat. Tom Storer and Tom Patton opened the batting but Storer was dismissed for 0 off 9 balls. Charlie Tink was next into bat and scored a quick fire 11 off 25 balls and the partnership was helped by some byes. Tom Patton was next to fall for 9 off 38 balls. Ethan Shaw was quickly dismissed and Jye Baker found himself on a hat trick ball but it was well defended by Cale Slack-Smith. Slack-Smith was out soon after for 1. Hugh Thompson was next in and started a good partnership with Tink until Charlie Tink was caught by Hamling. Dan Hunter and Hugh Thompson posted an excellent 32 run partnership, running lots of twos and threes. Thompson was dismissed for 21 off 34 balls. Harry Priest and Dan Hunter had another great partnership of 27 in the last few overs but Priest was dismissed for 11 on the last ball of the innings looking for some easy runs. Orange City came out to bat and had a shakey start, losing Jye Baker in the first over for 0. Caleb Toms was in next and had a 25 run partnership with Hamling until Hamling was dismissed for 4 off 18 balls. Campbell Warburton was next in and posted a 70+ run partnership, Toms reached fifty off only 46 balls and retired. Murray Fisher was next man and smashed a quick fire 11 off 12 balls and was there to hit the winning runs, with Warburton and Fisher finishing not out. By Will Pearce (Year 8)

U17 Colts T20 Challenge Cup
Round 3: KWS x/126 defeated Orange City 5/125
Round 4: KWS 4/96 defeated Cavaliers 6/94
Report: In retrospect, you should usually bat first to put on scoreboard pressure on the opposing team. That statement can be false when it comes to the skipper Fletcher Doyle by winning the toss and electing to bowl first. The decision led to a victory for the KWS Colts.
The boys restricted Cavs total to 94 with a brilliant bowling cartel and terrific fielding all-round. The wicket s were all shared amongst the bowlers. George Cumming once again shined in his 4 overs with 2/8 . Tom Madigan flabbergasted the crowd with his 2 wickets in 5 balls giving KWS the extra edge over Cavs, Madigan ended his figures with 2/12. Jono Rasmussen had the Cavs danger man out early in the innings. The T20 debutant Joe Priest amazed everyone with his bowling with 2/18. Joe had set up the batsmen and took advantage to take the wickets.
Kinross took their time to chase down the runs, Tom Kiss and Brad O'Brien opening up their accounts to a great start. Both of them buckled down to reward the team with maximum runs. Brad fell short of retiring not out after being dismissed on his final ball for 23 but it didn’t change the fact that he made a huge impact on the game. Tom Kiss again retired not out on 17, after patiently waiting for the bad balls to come. Tom opened up and dismantled the bowlers for plenty runs. Hugo Goodlet was unlucky to be bowled first ball. Nic Rasmussen once again retired not out for 37 off his 20 balls. Nic was constantly looking for runs starting early and continued to rotate the strike. He is yet to have an average in the Colts T20 competition. Fletcher Doyle and Angus Blyde finished off the game in extraordinary fashion to deliver the victory.
